YAY! SO MANY CHARACTERS WE LIKE! (and, um, a few we don't like all that much)

And what's more, QUESTIONS. Why did Tabitha's mom stay behind when everyone else had to evacuate the planet? Better yet, if everyone else had to evacuate, HOW could she stay? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

Fun fact: I have no idea what a "tear in the electron scaffolding" is. That's just part of the technobabble backstory to Cinematic Titanic. Shout outs are fun.

Bridget looks really concerned there.

Blitzkrieg1701, December 2nd, 2012, 3:19 am

Well, yeah. She's had to run to some strange new place 'cos her home's unsafe. That's gotta be worrisome, especially to a little kid.

(Good thing Momma's there to make everything alright)

Yeah, it's just that Alphonse seems as fine as he is with anything that doesn't happen everyday.

You know, as much as I like the zombie kids, occasionally I stop and think just how they're there - Tabitha made them out of leftovers, which implies that they were a part of another experiment that they didn't survive. Which brings the question: How many children died so that they could live? (Not directly, of course)
And for what reason was deadly experiments performed on apparent children?

Blitzkrieg1701, December 2nd, 2012, 1:18 pm

It's one of those things we're probably better off not thinking too hard about.

Still, in the interest of keeping Tabitha's Dad from being too unsympathetic (remember, it was HIS experiments that provided the "leftovers") I've been assuming that the bodies died of natural causes rather than being straight up KILLED.

FWAH. I am glad you're making these comics, I need them. Why didn't you warn me that being productive and learning to draw is so tiring!? I blame you!

AND BLATANT ADVERTISING BECAUSE I WANT TO... Check out my art thread. *wink wink
Commissions should wait until January, though...

Two things! Wow!
1) An 'electron scaffolding' sounds like something that could only be constructed in a vacuum (like outside the atmosphere). I can see mom insisting that Dr. Caligari take Kevin and Megaweapon with him so she could clean up the place in peace before she followed. Jenna would be a great help with that, but she is (or was then) the only one with the patience and willingness to try to keep Megaweapon under control. He, of course, fooled with the equipment and caused the tear, so now, although the surface of the planet is safe, no one can get on or off until the tear repairs itself.

2) A third possibility for Bridget and Alphonse: Dr. Caligari might have been trying to give Bridget and Alphonse some sort of superpowers, but the experiment failed and they died. He went on to something else but Tabitha thought they were worth salvaging. (And, obviously, did.) So they weren't already dead OR deliberately killed.

An interesting idea for Bridget and Alphonse, there. Unfortunately, what little we DO know is that they were "leftovers from one of [Dr. Caligari's] Elixer of Life projects", which kind of limits the possibilities.
